5% of the earth’s ocean that is explored has an estimation of 30,000 different types of fish.
The thought is fascinating. However, it is not as this particular fish species. The Salema porgy (Sarpa salpa) can actually cause hallucinations if consumed. If you accidentally eat this fish, there are high chances that you will hallucinate.

Maybe that is why Salema porgy is commonly referred to as dreamfish. Sarpa salpa looks like normal fish. A 6-18 inches long silver body with gold stripes. You can find these fish around the Tenerife, Cyprus, Malta, and South Africa coasts.
The gold stripes on a silver body look pretty awesome but eating the fish is such a wrong idea. Do not be fooled by the amazing look of the fish. The Salema porgy is known to produce auditory as well as visual hallucinations. What you experience is similar to the LSD and DMT effects.
If you accidentally, encounter the fish, do not consume it!
